Burial plots

The Exclusive Rights of Burial for a grave space can be purchased in advance in order to secure a plot. Alternatively a plot can be allocated at the time of booking a funeral. Please note that plots are allocated as next available and cannot be chosen.

The Rights for grass plots are granted for a period of 50 years and this allows the holder to nominate who can be interred (buried) within the grave and also gives the right to place and maintain a monument on the grave.

The Rights for above ground cremated remains vaults and a niche within a columbarium are granted for a period of 25 years and this allows the holder to nominate who can be interred within the plot and also gives the right to apply for an inscription for the plaque door.

Full burial grass plots can be dug for one, two or three coffins and then up to six sets of ashes. Cremated remains (ashes) grass plots for up to three sets of ashes can also be purchased. Cremated remains plots are available in both London Road Cemetery and Woodman Road Cemetery, full burial plots are only available in Woodman Road Cemetery.

Above ground cremated remains (ashes) vaults are now available in Woodman Road Cemetery and can hold up to four sets of ashes. Columbariums are now also installed in Woodman Road Cemetery where the Rights to a niche can be purchased to inter up to two sets of ashes.

Apply online to pre-purchase a plot.
